Joseph: “Fighter”

Song of the Day

Joseph: “Fighter”

Posted by on Jul 20, 2019

Portland alt-pop sister trio Joseph make their return to the spotlight with a fresh release from their upcoming album Good Luck, Kid, a road movie in album form, out September 13thThe first song since their 2016 breakthrough illuminates the fact that they almost called it quits, with their three-year hiatus being plagued by the prospect of a breakup.

The pounding bass and signature layered vocals, on “Fighter” mark a new era for Joseph in both meaning and sound, with their dreamy folk expanding into something a little bit grittier. Highlighting both their own struggles as a family band and offering an antidote for the trying times we’re living in, “Fighter” is an anthem you won’t want to get out of your head.

With a genesis in Austin, TX, the now Los Angeles based CAPYAC is what happens when you throw French house music, jazz, funk, live dancers, and wild stage antics in a blender and press play. The ever-evolving musical act was started by two high school friends known as Potion and P. Sugz. With a rotating list of contributors including saxophonist Papa Mongoose, MC Rudi Devino, and an unsigned K-Pop singer among others, CAPYAC is constantly reinventing and reevaluating, keeping the listener guessing while always managing to pump out good beats to dance to.

With a new EP release Baby Make Money under their belts, CAPYAC are returning to Austin on July 20th to perform their newest tracks. And with live shows that range from fashion show to performance art, they’re a live act that’s not to be missed.

CAPYAC stopped by Studio 1A ahead of their show on Saturday to bring their live presence onto the radio waves and talk about what went into the making of their newest releases, the band’s transition from Austin to Los Angeles, and why they put the Mayor Steve Adler on the guest list for every show they perform.

Austin based singer-songwriter Daisy O’Connor stopped by Studio 1A ahead of her album release show at the Cactus Cafe on Friday to play a few songs off her upcoming release MIXTAPE II. Inspired by some of her favorite artists Sufjan Stevens and Daniel Johnston, she recorded all of the songs analog onto 8-track cassette with the help of her collaborator Kyle Reed.

A staple of the Austin music scene since the release of her first album Lightchasers in 2017, she’s become known for her unique musical mixture of folk country-pop. Her next release combines some original songs including Cookies N Weed, one of KUTX’s songs of the day, as well as a collection of classic covers of songs from Johnny Cash, Lucinda Williams and others.

Hailing from Florence, Texas, The Boleys consisting of Ethan, Emma, and Joe Boley are a sibling band with a wide variety of influences ranging from psych-rock to blues and punk. Growing up listening to their parent’s music collections and playing in their high school jazz bands, a trip to SXSW in 2015 gave them the inspiration to start writing and performing together.

Although they still live and work out of their refurbished barn turned studio/rehearsal space in Florence, The Boleys have become a staple of the Austin psych scene. You can listen to their newest album El Toro and catch them on their Texas Invasion tour throughout the rest of July.

Upcoming Shows: 7/26 Hotel Vegas @ 7 p.m. with Modular Sun
